Re: Color fade

Use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.

the dull and faded color could mean you need to change the coolant.
you could also try and adjust your convergence.

The color seems to be fading. NOt a clear picture.

Likely the picture tubes are getting weak from old age. Not much you can do about this.

Color and brightnes fading

the most likely cause is the coolant needs to be replaced in the CRTs. Very common problem. You can get the Phillips CRT coolant kit at the following link which contains the coolant and step by step instructions. Its listed under the repair kit category.

Picture is fuzzy and color seems faded

Sounds like your coolant in the tubes need to be repalced. This is a common problem as the set gets older. Check with for the supplies and instruction guide.
